Welcome!

Welcome and thank you for stopping by the official website for the 5th KY Co. B Confederate Infantry. We are a Civil War reenacting unit based around the Louisville, KY area (though we have members in other states/areas), portraying and teaching the history of the American Civil War through living it. We are members of the Tennessee Valley Battalion (TVB).

Whether you are curious about the hobby, or just want to see a reenactment yourself, we welcome you to have a look around. Please, feel free to ask questions.



Interested in becoming a Reenactor?

We welcome individuals and families that are interested in all types of period impressions. We typically participate at least once a month (sometimes more often), in either a battle reenactment or living history presentation, during the months of March through November. It is not mandatory that each member participates in every event, as we realize that the constraints of modern life can interfere with event schedules. Please check out the Events Calendar to see where we will be this year. If you want to know more about the hobby, check out the Considering Reenacting? page and then Contact Us to learn how you can come out and try the hobby. We will take care of your gear for the 1st event, so it is completely risk free to find out if this great hobby is for you!
